It’s great when personal interests intersect with a professional assignment. That was the case for these recent images of Langdon Cook, author and professional forager. I met up with Langon on the PCT at the 5000 foot elevation mark of Mt. Rainer. On a brisk day in amazing light, we hiked and talked about the finer points of foraging. As he collected huckleberries, he told me the pleasures of sharing the food you find yourself.

Check out his blog, Fat of the Land. Langdon’s book about foraging is Fat of the Land: Adventures of a 21st Century Forager.
